In addition to the line in/out call, is the line judge also responsible for touch/no touch/antenna calls at the net?
(Note: I understand the up-ref usually makes these calls because he's standing right there. But I seem to remember many plays where the line judge also waved his flag frantically when a player hit the antenna.)
I believe line judges are also responsible for antenna calls, but they are not responsible for net touches
I was actually referring to ball touches -- whether a defender touched the ball during a hit attempt.
2. If during Team A's serve, a player on Team B gets her hand on the ball but the ball goes over the net to Team A's side and lands as a kill, does the player get a pass rating? I'm assuming the answer is "YES" because it would be a "1" for an overpass. I'm just wondering if the fact that it landed as a kill makes a difference.
This came up during my CAP II clinic during a breakout session on stat tracking. What you said is what most people do when stat tracking (it’s what I do as well). The “well ackshyually” answer is that the pass is considered a 4 pass since the pass was a kill. It’s the opposite of a 0 pass being considered an ace and automatic point for the other team.
Yes, we looked at the coach running that session the same way many of you are probably looking at my reply.

Do they have to say "challenge" in the appropriate language of the first referee? Or can they say it to the R2, in the appropriate language? Or is "challenge" the FIVB accepted term? What if they say "I challonge" in a British or "Je Suis challonge" in a French accent?
I think they should just have a glove that they can use to slap the face of the ref.
Thanks to a partnership/sponsorship with Mattel, during FIVB matches, coaches hold up a reverse uno card to challenge

I was wondering if anyone knew why several teams have weeks mid-season with only one match scheduled? I've noticed this in the Big12 and SEC, and other conferences as well. I've never seen this in PAC, B1G and most other conferences.
The SEC and Big 12 have big conferences, so that a team does not get to play every other team twice. So why have weeks mid-conference with only one match?
Maybe you are searching among the branches, for what only appears in the roots. -Rumi
